Ensalada De Zanahoria Bar Bahia. Note: Here is a quite different carrot salad with Middle Eastern overtones-the carrots are lightly cooked and seasoned with garlic, oregano, and cumin. It comes from the exceptional Bar Bahia in Cadiz.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare several hours in advance.
  2. Place the carrots in a saucepan with a mixture of water and chicken broth just barely to cover. Add a little salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for about 10 minutes (more or less depending on the thickness of the carrots), until just done but still slightly crisp.
  3. Cool and cut in 1/4-inch slices.
  4. In a cup mix together the vinegar, water, garlic, oregano, cumin, paprika, and salt. Fold gently into the carrots.
  5. Marinate for several hours or overnight.

Delicious! A couple of shortcuts - double the recipe, slice the carrots in your cuisinart, put the processor bowl in your microwave w/ a dash of water, cover and zap for 4 minutes. Drain, add to whisked dressing.
